    Menthol Monday's Memorial Day Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Fine Snake Bite Shaving Soap
    Ever-Ready C-40
    Ever-Ready 1914
    GEM Blue Star SE
    Osage Rub

    To honor those who gave their lives for our country, I am shaving with my Ever-Ready Army Kit from 1917-18.

    The Fine Snake Bite Shaving Soap face-lathered well with my Ever-Ready C-40 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Ever-Ready 1914 Razor with a GEM Blue Star SE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Great shave buddy!

    How cold is the Snake Bite soap? I wonder if it would compare to any of the Stirling Glacials!

    Menthol Monday:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Derby day 3
    Stirling Glacial Obsidian SS
    Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
    Fine Snake Bite AS Splash
    Azzaro Wanted By Night EdP

    What a killer cold setup this is - even the mentholated pre shave soap from Stirling can put a good chill in your cheeks and chin, it’s so cleansing, moisturizing, and does it ever soften up a tough beard like mine. The Glacial Obsidian soap is based on Stirling Black Ice which is a soap that is also anise scented, but the Obsidian has a MUCH stronger menthol sensation yet it lathers like a champ and its slickness, like all Stirling soaps is fabulous. The Glacial Unscented balm added plenty of extra iciness along with wonderful moisturizing and soothing, and the Snake Bite aftershave stung like hell when I first slapped it on but then it felt brrrrrr cold and beautiful. I’m starting to enjoy the Azzaro Wanted By Night which the wife bought me. Three passes did the job for me - another brilliant BBS shave!

    Have a great week - be safe and healthy!

    Superb shave, though I ran out of the 42 splash last year. I used Sunny Lane and it is almost, but not entirely unlike a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.

    Take a moment today to remember those who selflessly sacrificed everything for you and me,

    especially Reuben Bechtel, who perished in the Civil War.

    Shave of the Week!!

    I haven't posted much lately. Trying to deal with my wife's passing has been difficult. Every day is a mixed bag, sometimes better and then something will trigger a memory/thought and it's tough again.

    Anyway, this week's stuff is:

    Gillette Slim Adjustable razor
    Astra SP blade
    WD Synthetic brush
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill A/S

    Nice nice shave indeed. All the parts liked each other a lot and my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.
